4.43/5 rDev +13%
Bought a few bottles today in a mixed sixer. Bottled on date 3/28/14, so 11 days old. Served probably 40-50 degrees in a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
A: Poured with a 2 finger head that dissipates quickly into a thin layer on top. Decent carbonation, color is a very very clear dark yellow with some orange, it's very light, almost like a pilsner. Looks good.
S: It's almost like i'm smelling Go To or Enjoy By, onion/garlic dankness, (could be due to the freshness), citrus, grapefruit, fresh orange, slight bread, there is a specific smell to this that I only ever get from enjoy by/go to and it could be either the freshness of the hops or they used the hop bursting method, either way it smells great.
T: Great, fresh hops, orange, grapefruit, onion/garlic dankness. Slightly watery but not too bad, Go To definitely has a little more flavor.
M: Slight carbonation, a little watery.
Overall this is a great session IPA, very similar to Stone's Go To, less flavorful and hoppy of course. I will be buying this this summer if it's priced less than Stone's.

Pale yellow with a fluffy white foam head. Bread, oranges, and herbal in the nose. Light-bodied, grapefruit, citric, grassy, tannic, orange rinds with a dry, mineral finish. Packed with flavor and extremely drinkable.
A very solid session beer for those looking for light and hoppy.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear straw yellow with a medium creamy white head that goes to a thin film, leaves a little lacing and then almost disappears.
The aroma is very subdued - slightly vegetative, piney, resiny hops.
The flavor is sweet bready malts with some spicy, peppery, piney hops. The mouthfeel is light bodied and a bit watery.
Overall, an OK blandish session IPA. There's almost no nose, it's pretty thin, the flavors are OK but it's a bit on the sweet side.

Appearance: 1 inch head, gold in color, high carbonation, clear
Smell: tangerines and tropical fruits
Taste: tangerine, toasted malt, orange, light grapefruit and pine
Mouthfeel: slightly bitter, light bodied with high carbonation
Overall: A nice, citrusy and light IPA. I like other beers from Firestone Walker better, but if I am looking for a nice IPA to sip, I will reach for this.
